Cee-Lo's "F*ck You" Is the F*cking Best

Adult contemporary radio programmers have got to be already scrambling to come up with a way to repackage Cee-Lo's new song, "Fuck You." Although this song is more of a Sunday-morning Al Green gospel tune than the peppy "Crazy" or the salacious "Pimps Don't Cry," crossover success is imminent. Judging by the slow-moving mechanics of radio, the catchy strains will accompany your trip to Walgreens by November.

For the rest of us, this is hot buttered soul right now that's the perfect salve for our economically frazzled, oil-drenched times, no matter what USA Today might have you believe. I'd quote the lyrics, but they're all onscreen in amusing fashion in the video below. And if you don't like it, well...

Props to Nah Right.
